DIY

We are a Do It Yourself kind of family.  We hope that you will find some fun kid’s crafts, costume ideas, and home improvement projects that are a lot of fun here!  Most of our costumes are thrift store make overs and Disney inspired!  Many of our crafts are also easy and are great for kid’s birthday parties, holiday gifts, and more.  We use our own house as the canvas for many of our home decor and home DIY projects; decorating the kid’s rooms is my favorite!  I hope you will find some inspiration here!
